The Curated Books The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, Second Edition, by Jesse Schell Presents 100+ sets of questions, or different lenses, for viewing a game’s design, encompassing diverse fields such as psychology, architecture, music, film, software engineering, theme park design, mathematics, anthropology, and more. Written by one of the world's top game designers, this book describes the deepest and most fundamental principles of game design, demonstrating how tactics used in board, card, and athletic games also work in video games. It provides practical instruction on creating world-class games that will be played again and again. View it here. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games. With special focus on those developers with small budgets and limited staff and resources, this book is packed with tangible recommendations and techniques that you can put to use immediately. As a seasoned professional of the indie game arena, author Joel Dreskin gives you insight into practical, real-world experiences of marketing numerous successful games and also provides stories of the failures. View it here. An Architectural Approach to Level Design This is one of the first books to integrate architectural and spatial design theory with the field of level design. The book presents architectural techniques and theories for level designers to use in their own work. It connects architecture and level design in different ways that address the practical elements of how designers construct space and the experiential elements of how and why humans interact with this space. Throughout the text, readers learn skills for spatial layout, evoking emotion through gamespaces, and creating better levels through architectural theory. View it here.

The SFML tutorials don't really explain how networking works in detail. They mostly focus on how to use SFML to do networking (i.e. the code). The SFML 1.6 networking tutorials can be useful, and it's usually pretty easy to convert 1.6 code to SFML 2.0.

 

But if you're wondering how sockets and all that stuff, +1 for Beej's network tutorial.

 

Someone told me that the latest SFML 2 version has examples and documentation, just not yet up on the website. If you download from the repository, and build with CMake, you can have it build the documentation and examples as well.

The tutorials are done but not all uploaded to the website, but they're not in the code repository either. The documentation is up to date on the website. It does have examples, though, which could be useful.

 

FWIW, the new SFML 2 logo is going to be chosen today, and then integrated into the website for the official SFML 2 release in a few days. So the 2.0 tutorials will be up really soon.

Beej's network tutorial is the most well-known and "classical" tutorial for networking. It's old (>25 years) but our network protocols haven't changed.

 

Someone told me that the latest SFML 2 version has examples and documentation, just not yet up on the website. If you download from the repository, and build with CMake, you can have it build the documentation and examples as well.

That is what i had in mind when i made the post, good read!

Also thank you!

Good to hear that, i was not up to date with that info ohmy.png

I wish i could go few years  back in time and slap my self really hard...

Back then i had so much free time and all i did was lazy around. Now i got no time and i have all the will.

 

 

 

I made a tutorial series on networking SFML with a server written in Node. It shows how to implement a simple high score system.

No shame in self promoting ^^

I will check that up for sure!
